Are golf shoes required to play golf?
Golf shoes are not required by all golf courses, however, it is strongly recommended that you wear golf shoes during play. By design, golf shoes are built to help golfers look, feel and play their best—from the first tee to the final putt.
From a looks perspective, golf shoe manufacturers produce a wide range of styles that fit many player profiles—from casual to athletic, from traditional to fashion-forward.
What should I look for in a pair of golf shoes?
A round of golf places various demands on your feet, and manufacturers place a high importance on feel when constructing their products. Uppers can feature a leather construction for shape consistency, support and weather protection, or a mesh/synthetic construction for range of motion and ventilation during warm weather. Insoles and midsoles are meticulously designed to provide underfoot support through the stroke and shock absorption with each step. Wearing proper golf shoes ensures your feet remain comfortable based on the demands you are placing on them during play.
Performance is paramount in golf shoe design, and the golfer’s ability to maintain balance and grip is key to performing well on the course. Spiked and spikeless outsoles are engineered to help golfers maintain a solid foundation on terrain commonly found on a golf course. Golfers who wear sneakers may notice slipping or unsure footing on the course, which leads to a loss of balance and lack of shot control.
What is the difference between spiked and spikeless golf shoes?
The difference between spiked and spikeless golf shoes lies purely in the design of the outsole. Spikeless golf shoes feature a series of built-in traction lugs placed in key areas on the outsole in order to provide grip and maximize balance through the stroke. Since the lugs are built into the actual outsole, golfers notice a more grounded feel, similar to the feel of a standard sneaker. This style of golf shoe is ideal for golfers who commonly play in firm/dry conditions and require on/off course versatility.
Spiked golf shoes have outsoles that combine built-in traction lugs with protruding, interchangeable spikes. These strategically-placed spikes are constructed of a soft plastic material and provide multi-directional traction and stability through the stroke. Since the spikes protrude from the outsole, golfers may notice a slightly elevated feel. This style of golf shoe is ideal for golfers who play in varying turf conditions and require superior grip on any terrain.
Which shoes are better for beginners—spiked or spikeless golf shoes?
Beginners may be best served by spiked golf shoes. Spiked golf shoes provide a solid foundation—a crucial element of a successful golf swing. Spiked golf shoes should eliminate the slipping and excess shifting that can disrupt a beginner’s developing swing.
